ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART  
by
3/31/20 Posted 3/5/09

         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticit... [more]

Daniel Buren at Palais Royal August 1st, 1986 - December 31st
Posted 8/28/14

Given that we are in the zombie month of August when most galleries are closed, your faithful correspondent decided that it was time to go and check out some permanent public art: Daniel Buren’s 1986 installation Les Deux Plateau, apparently more commonly known as Colonnes de Buren. I’m assuming that for such a worldly audience as ArtSlant’s, these titles need no translation. But what is it? Well, it’s a grid of 260 candy-stripped columns, in a grid of candy-stripped lines in...

Its name is Studio Job. Graduates of Design Academy Eindhoven, Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel founded Studio Job in Antwerp in 2000.

Art and the Environment in East-Central Europe Introduction - from a special issue of ARTMargins  
by
8/27/14 Posted 8/27/14

Art and the Environment in East-Central Europe is an editorial project born from interviews and other forms of interaction with artists and cultural producers concerned, in one way or another, with the idea and the material reality of what goes by the name of the "natural environment." In the different pieces collected within this project, the term "environment" unfolds into a broad variety of concepts and artistic practices that do not, and should not, become homogenized. A survey rather than... [more]

A World's Fair tribute in a New York neighborhood mash up   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Posted 8/24/14

New York City has always been a draw for an eclectic mix of artists working across the visual and performing arts. Its underground pubs and speakeasies, expansive loft spaces, museums, sidewalks, and streets have served as creative inspiration for all kinds of movements including jazz, expressionism, Fluxus, hip-hop, and punk. Despite all of that creative energy and expression, the city has also been a beautiful breeding ground for social and cultural dissonance. While New York may not be known... [more]

Pray Harder: An Interview with Delphine Boël  
by
8/24/14 Posted 8/24/14

Brussels, Aug 2014: In Delphine Boël’s witty and thought-provoking Pray Harder exhibition at Guy Pieters Gallery on the Belgian coast throughout September an anonymous letter writer sends God a series of imploring, coquettish and frustrated letters. The only response this devotee receives, mostly conveyed in the form of sculptures, is “Pray Harder.” This series, like all Boël’s art, wraps fraught, raw and heavy content in cheerful colours, frisky forms and an upbeat...

Posted 8/21/14

A human skull rests atop a modest wooden table flanked by a chronometer, books, musical instruments, an earthenware pot, and swathes of silk. Harmen Steenwyck’s Still Life: An Allegory of the Vanities of Human Life (1612-1656) is emblematic of the vanitas genre, most commonly known for its intimate tabletop tableaux alluding to the transient nature of all worldly goods and pursuits. Upon entering Vanitas – Nothing is Forever Anyway at Berlin’s Georg Kolbe Museum, one immediate... [more]

Ancient Statues Pose for Selfies - Hyperallergic

8/20/14 Posted 8/20/14

Selfie-ification of Agesandros and Poloydoros Athendoros, “Laocoon and his Sons” (c.1816), plaster, 240 x 141 x 83cm (image via Imgur) It’s one thing to take a #museumselfie with a work of art, as if to say, “yes, I was here with this artwork” or “yes, here is my reflection in the surface of this piece.” It’s another thing to make Greco-Roman statues look like they were chiseled specifically for selfie-shooting moments. That’s what Redd... [more]

When Depression Strikes - HYPERALLERGIC

8/20/14 Posted 8/20/14

Installation view of “Depression” at Francois Ghebaly Gallery. All images by the author for Hyperallergic. LOS ANGELES — It was 4:20pm when I walked into Depression and encountered Andrea Ursuta’s piece “Stoner” (2013). A batting-cage ball-throwing machine creaked on, spun once, and died before it could eject anything from its quarantined-off belly. It is located inside a larger batting cage. There is no entrance. There is no bat to play with. Stones are... [more]

Still from Julie Perini’s video “The White Lady Diaries” (2013) (image via julieperini.org) LOS ANGELES — In journalism, Betteridge’s law of headlines states that any headline ending in a question mark can be answered with the word “no.” Such is also the case for the Safe & Sound?, a video project by Portland-based artists, activists, and community organizers Julie Perini, Jodi Darby, Erin Yanke, Amelia Cates, and Christopher Hamann. The group’s one-hour documentary considers the relat... [more]

Endurance training for the noncommittal   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Conrad Guevara at City Limits July 19th - August 23rd
Posted 8/18/14

At the heart of the works in No Can Handle is the ethos of endurance. Entering the exhibition is not unlike entering an interpretation of a physical training facility. Equipment-like inventions dangle from the ceiling and perch amidst the gallery space; there is even a painted panel squatting in the crease of a gym mat on the floor. Many of the works, like Bow 4 (2014) have a suggestive tenacity. Bow 4 is a delicately curved wooden pole bending like a “C” around an entire wall, held in plac... [more]

This new page is under construction for a while as I add very old works scanned from slides.

I think artists who've been admitted all get an award and there's a competition for a prize. ... [more]

by
8/13/14 Posted 8/20/14

Schloss Eggenberg in Graz, Austria is a magnificent Baroque palace and in 2010 was included in the listing of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites. In 2012, when I made a brief stop at Graz, though I was not able to visit the museum housed inside the Schoss, Universalmuseum Joanneum, I was able to tour the building and its lovely garden ground. Though I couldn't go inside many marvelous rooms, I was able to see this wonderful triptych below through the window and though it was medieval in styl... [more]
